For hundreds, if not thousands of years, human beings have been fascinated by the supernatural and by those who appear to wield psychic powers. Our ancestors revered and feared them in equal measure. For people fear what they do not understand. But at the same time, hold those who seem able to sense and see things that the ordinary person cannot, in awe and respect.
They believed that their Shamans; Medicine men and women, Oracles and Seers all had the ability to see beyond the physical world and commune with spirit. They were deemed to play a vital and important role in taking care of the physical and spiritual welfare of their people. In times of sickness, famine and war, they were the ones that the people turned to for help and guidance.

A psychic is a person who has heightened sensory perceptions. These perceptions allow them to see, feel, hear, sense, or touch energy patterns which others are not attuned to experiencing. In other words, they are able to “tap into” a universal consciousness which they are then able to interpret for those who seek their help.
Some may use one or more tools of divination while others will use their keen intuition to access the information you need. Regardless of their process, psychics can offer assistance in many aspects of your daily life.

What is a psychic? You may ask. They seem to be on TV, and in films and books, but what actually makes someone psychic. In this day and age, anyone can set themselves up as a psychic. Magazines and websites are full of people who profess to be able to connect with people who have died or to be able to do Tarot card readings, about the past, present or future.
Many have no formal qualifications, unlike being a counsellor, there are no proper qualifications needed to become a psychic. Yet a psychic reading can more often than not become a counselling session. Topics discussed in either can range from relationship problems to dealing with the loss of a loved one.

Spiritualists believe, that the world of spirit is all around us. That is exists on a parallel dimension to the physical world. The reason why for the most part we cannot see spirit all the time or interact with it, is because it exists on a different vibrational level to our own. To explain more clearly what this means; The universe is made of energy. Everything around you is energy when broken down to it’s purest form of subatomic particles including yourself. Energy cannot be totally destroyed, it just changes form. When you are born, a spark of energy brings you into this world, and within our universe are other dimensions or planes of existence.
Spirit entities are made up of pure light energy, which vibrates at a higher level then the physical world. That is why we do not see them. Having said that some individuals do have the ability to see, feel or hear spirit. These people are called Psychic’s, Psychic Mediums or Clairvoyants.

Since time immemorial, humans have sought to predict important events before they happen. Early man and women studied the night sky, weather patterns, and animal behaviours to identify signs and patterns, then interpreted the subtle nuances supplied by nature to foretell upcoming occurrences.
Gifted individuals found they could read signs and symbols easier than others; these individuals became the medicine men and women, shamans, oracles, druids, and gurus of their cultures. Over time, people around the world, such as Egyptians, Celts, Romans, Native Americans, and Chinese, developed their own unique rituals and traditions for divining the future; These traditions form the basis for divination methods used today. Simply put, divination is the practice of predicting the future using specialised tools and rituals. Let us explore some of the various divination methods that have survived into modern times.

A lot of people believe that everyone has psychic abilities; however, a lot of people either don’t know how to develop these abilities or they are scared of doing it. There are many different forms of psychic ability from clairaudience, which is when people are able to hear messages from spirit or from their higher selves to clairvoyance, which is psychic sight. If you are clairvoyant then you probably see visions inside your head and these visions are often linked to future events.
Clairvoyance is one of those psychic abilities, though, that not everybody can develop fully and that is why some psychics call it ‘the gift’. Psychic sight is something entirely different to clairvoyance and I wanted to make sure that you didn’t get the two mixed up. Psychic sight is something that you can develop by opening your mind and practising regular meditation.
There are many reasons to meditate; some people do it to relax and forget about the stresses of their day while others do it to connect with a higher power and develop their intuition. There are some people who mistrust the whole concept of meditation because they feel opening their 3rd eye could be dangerous and allow all sorts of nasty things into their lives. This isn’t the case at all. You can choose how you meditate and if you don’t want to open your 3rd eye then you don’t have to.
